Alumni Newsletter: Spring 2009
Message from the Dean
Welcome to our first Faculty of Education alumni newsletter! A great deal is happening here. Our big news is that we will begin offering a program to prepare teachers for the Junior/Intermediate level this fall (final approval expected in June, 2009). This of course means adding more Professional Development School sites to our family and 70 more TECs on campus. On April 9, we held our first Open House to provide information to those who have been accepted into the program. In addition to mock lectures and a panel presentation, there was the opportunity to interact informally with faculty and staff and to view resources. The event was very well attended and helped to build excitement for the fall!
In addition, we will be adding one new full-time faculty member to our staff. Look for an official announcement of this in our next newsletter. More information on specific initiatives may be found in the stories below.
We are glad to have this opportunity as one more way of keeping in touch with our alumni. Please keep us posted on your accomplishments and let us know if there is a specific speaker or program you would like us to offer, custom-made for you as alumni. We are very interested in helping you to succeed!
